Preyansh Kotecha and Karan Khatri,
Advance Helmet For Mine Workers
The idea is to have a helmet for mine workers, using which their location inside the mine can be identified. The same can also be used for communication purpose if required.
Frequent news about accidents in mines and loss of the lives of the miners prompted the two friends to think about the problem and come up with this helmet. Karan has a passion for photography and football. He loves to make new friends and explore new places. Like his father, he wants to be a businessman but also wants to invest some money in fulfilling his scientific pursuits. Preyansh is very curious about new things and tries to innovate different things. He may become an entrepreneur to take forward his own ideas and innovations.
